Leeds, UK quintet Vessels shifted gears with their 2015 album Dilate. Vessels’ latest album marked a transition from what you could peg with the “post-rock” tag to a much more electronic-centric sound. While this is no radical move these days, the touch with which Vessels made the transition is impressive.
On April 1, Vessels will re-release a special edition of Dilate, which includes a bonus track. “4AM” is a beautiful representation of Vessels’ transition. The guitarless “4AM” is filled with emotive synths and arpeggiators (cue: James Murphy commentary) that gradually builds in complexity and layering over 6+ minutes. Stream Vessels “4AM” below.
